After the success of "Dances With Wolves" I think everyone was expecting something blockbuster from Kevin Costner. But after the well documented troubles with production, running over schedule etc etc, things took their toll. And with the so called Movie Critics that the plebs all listen panning this movie, its little wonder it failed at the box office.
Nevermind. We had VHS back then, and DVD now and voices on the internet to tell people, "This Is A Good Movie" I mean, its set almost entirely on water without solid ground in sight.
Global warming, Oil Crisis, Racism in the form of specism. Not only a good watch, but if your that way Inclined, thought provoking as well.
As for me, the rather tasty rear end of a certain tasty morsel added to some good viewing
